There’s a new job opening in Shanghai on the China markets team as a general financial market reporter. A great job with potential for rapid growth.
Reuters is seeking to hire an ambitious reporter for its Shanghai financial markets team to join us in covering one of the world’s most exciting stories, helping break news and provide insight to international readers as China’s government tries to restore confidence in its stock market while continuing to reform bond and currency markets, as well as push the internationalization of the yuan. This year is critical for Beijing as it tries to rationalize the way its financial system allocates capital to support innovation and healthy growth while deflating asset bubbles and evading a debt crisis.
The candidate will need to develop sources among policymakers, analysts, traders, company treasurers and professional investors, plus dive deep into the data to help readers understand what is happening, what is working, what isn’t working, and what Beijing is going to do about it. They’ll shoot out quick headlines, write short stories, plus help deliver longer-format work. For the right candidate, this position offers one of the quickest routes to getting your byline in front of millions of readers. The candidate will be ambitious in seeking to advance their career in journalism, with a willingness to work hard and commitment to good ethics and accurate reporting.
